Al-Farouq Aminu truly got Al-Fareaky in this game, a welcome sight for Blazers fans who were getting just a little bit tired of him shooting below thirty percent from three and below forty percent from the field. He’s still mired in those awful percentages, but games like this give you hope that he will be able to contribute to the Blazers’ playoff push with something other than his defense, which allegedly exists but I wouldn’t know since I don’t care about defense.
Normally I would be on him to shave off those ugly pube patches on his chin but I think they helped him in this game. Who’s gonna want to defend you tight when they risk getting a faceful of bristly unwashed chin-pubes as you drive by them? If I was a defender, I would try to keep my distance, not only to force Aminu to shoot a jumper that he probably won’t make, but also because I don’t want to contract a disease from whatever bacteria colonies are flourishing in that ratty, pubey germ haven. I wouldn’t even want to touch the ball after Aminu had been holding it so that would affect my offense too.
So, yeah, you can keep the beard, dude. I give you my permission.
